Castro, Inc.’s Ministry of Tourism is rejoicing today. No tourists were harmed by the tree that suddenly came down on a crowd of Cubans waiting for a bus in a section of Havana not usually frequented by foreigners.
Cubans commenting on social media could not help but notice that their island is experiencing a lot of disasters lately.
And hurricane season is here. Quiet for now in the Caribbean. But we’ve got three more months to go before the season is officially over. Aaaaay!
Loosely translated from Diario de Cuba
Three Cubans were injured during the fall of a tree near the Parque de la Fraternidad, in Havana, two of them minors, official journalist Lázaro Manuel Alonso reported on his Facebook profile.
According to Alonso’s publication, the three injured were treated at the Centro Habana Pediatric Hospital and the Calixto García Surgical Clinic and there is no danger to their lives because they suffered minor injuries. The incident occurred at the intersection of Reina and Amistad streets.
Michel Morán published several images on Facebook with the following caption: “Accident in front of the Computing Palace. Two trees fell and there are three injured who were trapped under the tree. The misfortunes continue.”
In addition, he shared a video where a tree can be seen while another is already collapsed on the street.
A commenter on the publication noted: “Cuba is collapsing in our face and we do nothing, these are signs that this country can no longer take it.”
